PINDA KACHA SABDA SACHA - The body is perishable, the word is eternal" - Babaji

PINDA KACHA SABDA SACHA - The body is perishable, the word is eternal" - Babaji

"Have you become dependent on Babaji´s physical form? What will you do when He leaves His body?" a wise man asked me in Delhi. And to my Indian companion he said, "Don´t go looking here and there, look to yourself. Only within yourself can God be found. Concentrate on the immortal and hold it always before your mind´s eye."

Was I dependent on Babaji´s human form? Well, yes and no. Those of us living abroad couldn´t very well run to Him with every problem, like the devotees living closer to Him could. We were forced to look inside for the answers. Babaji helps us to find the inner master, to raise our consciousness and to strengthen our discriminative powers. When someone clung on to Him they were sent away to find their self-worth in the world and to fulfil their duties and work.

I desired His physical presence nevertheless, for it was instantly so uplifting. With Him I became a free child again - one that could be educated and guided. He knew every flutter of my heart and taught me love and trust. He could read me like a book and this made me know I was totally accepted, with no part excluded or falsely included.

Today Babaji said: " One day My body will dry up. It has no meaning of itself and is only there to serve and help humanity. All beings, animals, flowers, birds and stones, have a form given them by God so that they can fulfil a function in the world. The only reason My body has been created is to fulfil the function of serving all beings, human and other."
